Inter Miami has received bad news: 'The deal will not go through.'
Lionel Messi's MLS transfer request was denied.
Lionel Messi revolutionized Inter Miami. After beating Cruz Azul and Atlanta United, one of the poorest MLS teams is now a favorite to win the 2023 Leagues Cup.
Messi has scored three goals in less than a week and leads a club that is playing as a new franchise under coach Gerardo Martino. Sergio Busquets' immediate influence may lead to additional US players.
Jordi Alba has joined Inter Miami and is waiting to debut, and Luis Suarez is another major name. That issue has a major announcement.
Gremio plays Luis Suarez in Brazil. The Uruguayan striker saw the opportunity to reunite with his pal Lionel Messi when he announced his MLS signing.
Gremio won’t let him go. First, any interested team must pay the $75 million release clause. Renato Gaucho now addressed Messi and Miami. “No deal. Gremio has Luis until December. The soap opera ended.”
Luis Suarez cannot play for Inter Miami in 2023. If Lionel Messi's club wants to make a new offer, recall the contract expires in December 2024.
Suarez and Gremio will fight for as much money as possible. Negotiations ended today. Next year, too.
